Amazon SimpleDB

Well suited for: Games, Chat rooms, real time software like corporate events, marathons and so. Anytime and anywhere you could use a NoSQL DB you should think of SimpleDB.
As an arduous AWS user, Amazon SimpleDB easily integrates with EC2 and other AWS module; and if you are not an AWS user, you also have a fantastic tool that will solve the problem for which you are focused.

Oracle Database Cloud Service

It is very well best suited in place where people are using Oracle Data Warehouse and Oracle application tools, and also where they are planning to move to cloud platform.

Cons

  • Non AWS environments
  • Strict storage limit (but well we have DynamoDB for storage issues)
Miguel Angel Merino Vega profile photo
  • It will be good to have UI control based auto backup options like retention of database backup, auto delete DB back-up.
  • Auto Extend Data Storage on existing local storage process needs to be little improved, it's not smooth to create the extension of data storage on local.
  • There should be some easy and better way of sending the DB monitor alerts (like Tablespace exceed,Index Space is full, High Performance Query on DB) to specific required email address.

Alternatives Considered

It integrates beautifully with AWS. In some projects we use SimpleDB while we use DynamoDB for others, according to the characteristics of the project. If the infrastructure is AWS, we always think of one of them.

I would prefer the oracle database as service where my complete implementation is on Oracle Cloud Platform and as BI Implementation where datawarehouse is built on oracle database.
